CRMC Seeking Input on Strategic Plan

CRMC 11-16, 2016

Cheyenne Regional Medical Center is inviting community members to participate in facilitated conversations focusing on the hospital’s long-term strategic plan.

The conversations will be held between Thanksgiving and Christmas, with the dates and times to be announced on the hospital’s website and shared with local media by November 23. All meetings will be held in the hospital’s main auditoriums, located at 214 East 23rd St.

As part of its long-term strategic planning process, CRMC hired Navigant, an independent firm specializing in health system assessments, to conduct a data review and a series of interviews with local governance representatives that included the hospital trustees and the Laramie County Commissioners; CRMC administration and local physician leaders.

“The data review and key informant interviews are one part of the data-gathering process needed to plan for CRMC’s future,” said Patrick Madigan, CRMC’s interim chief executive officer. “The next step, which is equally important, is to ask our community to provide input about where we are and where we should be headed as a health system.”

ALIGN, a respected local business consulting firm, will facilitate the community conversations.

“This kind of in-depth, independent review is critical to helping Cheyenne Regional fulfill its mission of providing the community with high quality care that is also accessible, well-coordinated and affordable,” Madigan said.

Each community conversation will last an hour and will focus on gathering responses to the same questions that were asked during the key informant interviews.

“In 2017 Cheyenne Regional Medical Center will celebrate 150 years of caring for this community,” Madigan said. “As we prepare to recognize this historic milestone, it’s vital that we carefully consider how we move forward, to ensure we are here, serving and caring for our community, for many more years to come.”
